Feel like there’s conflating between the optimism people feel about reopening and return to work. By going to restaurants and ballgames, I choose to accept the consequences for my own enjoyment. It’s not the same tradeoff asking me to collocate with team members or travel to the client site…

I assume restaurant workers (waitress, chef) also consider work as an enjoyment by your logic, right?

By not going to the office if your employer requires you to, you choose to accept the consequences for your own employment. Choices have consequences.

P1 I’m going t agree/disagree. For building business, I think face to face interaction is priceless. So I think flying in for a dinner or a networking event is a great idea. For the actual job itself, why should I need to wake up at 4AM on Monday, fly back at midnight on Thursday, leave my family all to sit in a conference room in Boise, Idaho for 12 hours per day? I don’t mind occasional travel, but traveling to do my job in a conference room in corporate BS clothes is where my disconnect is.

If every study shows bad management slows productivity and cost companies good employees, why are all these a**hole clients and the MDs who turn a blind eye protected? My client's awful attitude creates an extremely unproductive environment. We spend more time protecting his ego or getting irrationally screamed at, than we do doing our jobs. I thought our MD might step in, but he just completely downplayed it and even blamed us. Why isn't there more attention on changing this outdated ideology?

Just received cousin's invite to her wedding and it's on a Sunday. It's not necessarily a destination wedding but is in a city that neither she nor her family, nor her partner's family lives, so everybody has to fly + get hotels. I'm annoyed because I think it's a but disrespectful to your guests to make them all travel and do it on a Sunday so people have to take time off work Monday in order to attend. I know I don't have to attend, but shouldn't it be convenient for guests?
